  • Donald Trump Is Clueless on Abortion – But So Are Many Americans

    04/10/2016 8:06:31 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 18 replies ^ | April 10, 2016 | Kristan Hawkins
    Because the “pro-life” and “pro-choice” labels have become so subjective, Americans are increasingly identifying with a particular label when, in reality, they don’t fall under that camp at all. Donald Trump has stated he is pro-life with exceptions (rape, incest and life of the mother). He has also stated seriously radical positions that hardly anyone in the pro-life movement would agree with, like women who seek illegal abortions should be punished. He also said that the “laws are set" on abortion and that the legality of it should go back to the states. Last May, Gallup released a poll that...
  • Pro-Abortion Radicals Have Lost Their Hearts and Minds

    Two tweets in the last week, one from Cosmopolitan and one from NARAL, reveal the depravity of these radical pro-abortionists. Although the tweet has now been removed, Cosmopolitan sent out this message on February 4th: "Texas women are having more babies since Planned Parenthood was defunded," followed by a sad face. This was linked to a picture featuring the graphic #StandwithPP. Oh, the tragedy! Texas women are having more babies. More children are being spared the horrors of abortion - being sliced up, burned up, and sucked into pieces in the womb - and are seeing the light of day....
  • Pro-Life Voters Need to Look Beyond Celebrity

    01/20/2016 11:38:08 AM PST · by Kaslin · 12 replies ^ | January 20, 2016 | Kristan Hawkins
    The pro-life movement has had several wins over the 43 years since abortion was made legal in all nine months, but there have been far too many missteps and mistakes that have cost precious lives. Since January 22, 1973, close to 60 million (about the entire population of Italy for reference) preborn babies have lost their lives to abortion; and women and men suffered the emotional and physical devastation of their so-called "right to choose." Every presidential election demands voters decide what is most important for them and what candidate best represents their values. For anyone who cares about the...
  • Defunding Planned Parenthood Not the Same as Repealing the Right to Abortion

    08/05/2015 5:57:54 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 20 replies ^ | August 5, 2015 | Jonah Goldberg
    The GOP-controlled Congress is taking up the cause, once again, of defunding Planned Parenthood. This latest effort comes in response to macabre hidden-camera videos shot by the Center for Medical Progress of staff at Planned Parenthood talking about the grisly practice of chopping up fetuses for parts. There's a debate over whether the videos prove the center's claim that Planned Parenthood is ghoulishly trying to make a profit selling baby lungs, livers and hearts. There's less of a debate that the videos speak directly to the ugly nature of second-trimester abortions. Granted, a few extremists see nothing wrong in the...
  • Politics Is Not the Path to Pro-Life Victory

    During my time in Congress, I regularly introduced legislation forbidding organizations that perform abortions from receiving federal funding. The U.S. Government should not force taxpayers to subsidize an activity they believe is murder. Thus, while I was horrified by the recently released videos showing Planned Parenthood officials casually discussing selling the organs of aborted babies, I am glad that the reaction to these videos has renewed efforts to end federal funding of abortion. My experience in Congress does not leave me optimistic that federal funding of Planned Parenthood will be ended this year, however. This is not just because the...
  • West Virginia Overrides Governor's Veto On Abortion Law

    03/07/2015 4:31:27 AM PST · by Kaslin · 8 replies ^ | March 6, 2015 | Matt Vespa
    The newly elected Republican legislature in West Virginia flexed its muscles today by overriding Democratic Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin veto of an abortion law that would ban the practice after 20 weeks. In other words, late-term abortion is banned in West Virginia (via AP): The ban provides some exemptions for women in medical emergencies, but not for rape and incest. The bill is based on the assertion that fetuses can feel pain at 20 weeks, which is disputed in medical research. Opponents say it's unconstitutional and intrusive into doctor-patient relationships. Ten other states ban abortions after 20 weeks. The West Virginia...

    Political Realities ^ | 01/26/14 | LD Jackson
    Since the 2012 election when President Obama and his liberal Democrat friends used the war on women narrative with great success, there has been an extreme reluctance of Republican politicians to talk about women's concerns. No matter how or what they said, it was used against them in the very public arena of political campaigning. This seemed especially true whenever they talked about the foolishness of requiring employers to cover birth control or about the murder of unborn children that is called abortion. God forbid that a woman doesn't have access to birth control that is cheap to start with,...
  • Duck Dynasty Star Condemns ‘Ripping Babies Out of Womb’

    The patriarch of the Duck Dynasty family is creating a national stir after a 2010 video surfaced of him delivering a sermon at a Pennsylvania church condemning the debate over “whether it’s right or wrong to rip you out of your mother’s womb.” “You have a God-given right to live inside your mother,” Phil Robertson told hundreds of guests at a wild game dinner hosted by Berean Bible Church in Pottstown, Penn. “To debate whether it’s right or wrong to rip you out of your mother’s womb? What in the world has happened to us?” Robertson, one of the stars...
  • Is it Alright to Abort a Lesbian Baby?

    07/10/2013 2:38:02 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 49 replies ^ | July 10, 2013 | Michael Brown
    What if the “born gay” fallacy was true and it was possible to identify a “gay baby” in the womb? Would the flaming liberals who so fiercely cling to a woman’s “right to choose” affirm her “right” to abort a gay fetus? There is now a ridiculous TV commercial airing in Australia which allows this question to be asked, although that is surely a totally unintended consequence of the ad. The commercial shows an expectant mom and dad in the doctor’s office having an ultra-sound. After informing the parents that everything looks good, the doctor asks the beaming couple, “Now,...
  • Awesome: Pro-life Legislator Holds up Baby Shoes to Silence Wendy Davis

    During a hearing Monday on the 20-week abortion ban in Texas, State Senator Bob Deuell, MD held up a pair of baby shoes to represent the unborn children aborted every day. Deuell’s bold move was effective because his simple display of the small shoes perhaps said more than State Senator Wendy Davis did in her 11-hour filibuster against the pro-life bill. The symbol was also appropriate, considering at 18 to 20 weeks some mothers can already feel their baby kick. Bob Deuell has taken the lead on pro-life bills for years, including the Woman’s Right to Know Act and the...

    The House Pro-Choice Caucus has penned a letter to Texas State Senator Wendy Davis to thank her for her “powerful” and “courageous” 11-hour filibuster of the pro life bill SB5. The bill, which would prevent abortions after 20 weeks in the state, is significant because, as Dan reported, pre-born babies can feel pain as early as 20 weeks gestation. Yet, Davis spoke for 11 hours trying to save the morally questionable late term abortion procedure. Planned Parenthood thinks that’s pretty cool. So much awesome: the House Pro-Choice Caucus' thank you letter to @WendyDavisTexas: — Planned Parenthood (@PPact) July 3,...
  • The Texas Woman Who Should be Dead (Link In Article From FreeRepublic)

    01/28/2013 9:00:47 AM PST · by Kaslin · 3 replies ^ | January 28, 2013 | Casey Mattox
    There is a 43-year-old woman, born in Texas, who should be dead right now. In fact, she should have never been born. Forty years ago, the Supreme Court decided that the Texas law that prevented Jane Roe from ending the life of her unborn daughter was unconstitutional. But by the time the Supreme Court issued its decision in 1973, she had already been born and adopted by a family—likely not knowing that all that ink spilled in Roe v. Wade was about her. Norma McCorvey is “Jane Roe.” She claimed then that her pregnancy was the result of...

    This week marked the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, and since state-sanctioned slaughter via judicial fiat began at least 50 million Americans have been killed. Over the last 40 years there have been some eloquent attempts to win the defining moral argument of our age, but few have come close to being as effective as the one I’m sharing with you today. And it was written by Jesse Jackson. Yes, that Jesse Jackson. To commemorate the 4th anniversary of Roe v. Wade in 1977, Jackson wrote an editorial titled How We Respect Life is the Over-Riding Moral Issue. What’s...
  • Making the Case For Life

    In an ideal world, Roe v. Wade -- perhaps the most insidious Supreme Court ruling since the infamous Dred Scott decision in 1857 -- would be overturned. And contrary to what most leftists assert, however, this does not necessarily mean that abortion would be universally prohibited and illegal. For example, before Roe became the law of the land in 1973, abortion was permissible in certain states. The legality of abortion, then, should be decided by individuals at the state level -- at least in the short-term -- not by a High Court of un-elected, unaccountable judges in Washington. This...

    Few issues spur as much passion during election season and, well, the rest of the time, as abortion. Bumper stickers and applause lines that have passed the test of time are thrown around indiscriminately. Promoting “a culture of life” is one of the lines politicians utter almost solely to Christian audiences, considered automatons who respond instinctively to monotonous pro-life declarations. On Sundays and on television, countless clergymen, including mine, preach against abortion, emphasizing the Christian duty to oppose it. As a result, proponents of legalized abortion insist that those Christians keep their beliefs to themselves, and are completely bedazzled by...

    Pope John Paul II, 263rd Successor of St. Peter the fisherman [1] and beloved son of Poland has gone to God on the Vigil of the Feast of Divine Mercy. It was this Pope who canonized Saint M. Faustina Kowalska, an uneducated Polish nun who, in obedience to her spiritual director, wrote a diary of about 600 pages recording the revelations she received about God’s mercy. Even before her death in 1938, the devotion to The Divine Mercy had begun to spread. [2, 3] It was this Pope who officially declared the Sunday after Easter to be the Feast of...

    The Republican takeover of the Senate, a result of crucial victories by candidates opposed to abortion, has set off cautious celebration among anti-abortion activists and alarm bells in the opposing camp. ``The threat to choice is greater today than it has been in decades,'' said Kate Michelman, president of the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League. NARAL and its allies spent millions of dollars in the closing weeks of the campaign supporting Democrats for Senate who favor abortion rights against Republicans who oppose them. But in the five most closely contested of these races -- Colorado, Georgia, Minnesota, Missouri...
